To ensure every animal is placed in a forever home, GHHS begins this process with a detailed adoption application. You will fill out the application after choosing an animal to adopt. To be considered for adoption:
Meeting these guidelines is not a guarantee that your application will be accepted. GHHS reserves the right to adopt only to qualified homes based upon our guidelines. Each adoption is considered on a first-come, first-qualified basis once the animal is available for adoption. Exceptions may be made for potential adopters.
Adoption Fees vary based on pet.
The adoption fee covers: spay/neuter surgery (legally required), current vaccines and boosters, a microchip with a lifetime registration, heartworm preventative until time of adoption, and a small bag of food. Please note: all dogs must leave with a collar and leash. You can bring these items with you or purchase them at the shelter.
To use rescue, training, adoption, education, and advocacy to ensure the humane treatment and welfare of all animals.
Established 50 years ago, GHHS is financially supported by generous private donors, grants, and local sponsorships.
